    I'm definitely going to use either Chespin or Froakie, though I have to wait until their I see evolutionary forms to make a final decision

    Chespin is so much like the Pikachu clones though.Its face is identical to Emolga's.

    I can't see a Fox (canine) evolving into a Tiger (feline). Maybe next gen eh?

    Thanks for the hedgehog confirmation slowkingsley, I'm liking Chespin more by the minute.

    As I said above, I'm hoping for Grass/Steel final form Chespin, as well as Water/Ice for Froakie (though I can't see a cold blooded Frog becoming an Ice type) and Fire/anything but Fighting for Fennekin.

    Exactly what I thought,lol.Would be awesome to see if they incorporate a huge wig on its evos^^

    Gotta get used to the names, better now then when the rest of the Pokemon get revealed.

    I like all three, I'd never had issues before with starters but for the most part I never really liked all three that much before, I'm only a fan of 3 maybe 4 in total(I find them all interesting to some degree though). I can see myself having these three all be favorites though. I like the Fire one most so far, it's not a Wolf(Favorite Animal), but it's the closest to relate to one out of the three.

    Not sure what to expect for types, I imagine they'll all be single type until evolutions at least. I would like Dark, Fighting, and Psychic to be their dual types upon evolving though.

    I like the fire type the most so far. Just prefer its design more than others thus far. Quite cute!

    The grass starter made me think of Oshawott off the bat, haha. Going to reserve decisions on who to use once the evolutions are revealed though.

    I think I might go with Chespin as my starter, but I'm not 100% sure if I'll take it. I'm just hoping Fennekin doesn't evolves into another Fire/Fighting Pokemon, its getting boring now.

    As long as Fire gets either Dark or Psychic, I'm fine with this.

    I like all of the starters. But I like Froakie most.

    I mentioned it before but they finally broke the reptilian Grass starter line.

    It leans more towards Psychic imho. One move it used in the trailer looks a but like a psychic attack.

    I also love that the Fire type starter isn't red...golden and beautiful...I get a very elegant,mischievous vibe from it.While,the Water one is much more arristocratic--the way the Snivy line is.I anticipate that the Grass one will surprise me the most with its evos.I have no idea what to predict when I look at them.

    I think if I just give Froakie time, I'll grow to like him. The same thing happened to me with Tepig. I despised him at first, but now he's probably my favorite Unova starter because I love Emboar. I'm really excited to see the evolutions!!!!

    I hope they go fire/psychic(similar to ninetails) with fennekin. I always play fire starters and its nice to have one I can actually get excited about this generation. The last GREAT fire starter was gen 2..

    I don't know why everyone is hating on Chespin. He looks cool to me, all of them do as a matter of fact. But my favorite is Froakie. In the trailer hee used an attack that looked pretty fast, I don't think any of the previous water starters focused on speed.

    I'm guessing Chespin will be the Oshawott of the generation.. Badly appreciated at the beginning (due to it not smiling in the first art), but then turns out to be the most marketed pokemon in the end. Of course they can do it the exact same way, and Froakie turns out to be the real merchseller, but I doubt it.

    Chespin = Oshawott
    Fennekin = Snivy
    Froakie = Tepig

    In vibe that is, to me.. Which is good, because I picked Oshawott in BW, but didn't really like the Water-type, so now I can get my Grass-type again.

    Totally agree on the latter statement..

Toss in the significance of frogs and the occult in Western folklore and the fact that 'Froakie' could potentially be a play on 'fogey' (as in, 'old fogey'), we may have a water/psychic on our hands.
    Could be, but then I'd think he'd evolve into the MrMiyagi-type..

    Thoughts on the starters and how they'll evolve:

    Chespin will likely gain the dark type, as evidenced by the Night Slash it used in the trailer. I could see it growing into a spiny ninja-like thing. Can't tell if it's supposed to be a bear or a gopher at this point, but basically mammalian, with spikes.

    For Fennekin I predict it will gain the psychic type (as evidenced by the in-trailer move), and likely grow basically up. I can see it trending towards an elegant fox, ala Ninetales, but I could also see it going the more lupine route and becoming a large fiery wolf. At the moment, the former seems most likely.

    Froakie is the only one I can't predict very well. It looked like it used a fighting type move, and if it gained the fighting type, the type triangle would be inverted, with grass>fire>water, but then dark<psychic<fighting. If so, then Froakie may grow into a fighting type, and judging by the aristocratic collar, I could see him being a gentleman brawler, like a Victorian age boxer. Or, perhaps he'll stay a strictly water type and surprise me.

    I love all three starters. So very excited for this game. It's a shame we're getting yet another water-type frog pokemon though. I was hoping I could have a frog+toad-themed team but that's not going to happen if there are too many of the same type

    Fennecin is absolutely adorable. This might be the first time in a while that I use the fire starter on a first playthrough. Froakie is kinda cute in a derpy amphibian way. Chespin however, well, let's just say it's final evolution will have to be pretty awesome for me to consider using it. I really dislike its design.

    Hmm, my thoughts are: Fennekin is adorable! Sooo choosing him/her as my starter :3
    The other two are okay, not my favorite.

    I like the X legendary pokemon, it reminds me of some movie scene. (Y isn't bad)
    I seem to like majestic deer lol

    And the full 3D/Worldwide release is awesome.
    I think the main character is going to be customizable since he was looking into a mirror in the beginning.
